(A) THE TWO SISTERS
" 0 sister, 0 sister, come go with me, Go with me down to the sea."
Jury flower gent the rose-berry, The jury hangs over the rose-berry.
She picked her up all in her strong arms And threwed her sister into the sea.
"0 sister, 0 sister, give me your glove, And you may have my own true love.
" 0 sister, O sister, give me your hand, And you may have my house and land."
"O sister, 0 sister, I'll not give you my hand, And I will have your house and land."
0 the farmer's wife was sitting on a rock. Tying and a-sewing of a black silk knot.
"0 farmer, 0 farmer, run here and see What's this a-floating here by me."
"It's no fish and it's no swan,
For the water's drowned a gay lady."
